Lace Crowns — Quick Microwave Method 
makes ONE 18” crown
 

1/2 yard crocheted lace

  • (Also look for “Cluny Lace” or “Dyeable Cotton Lace”.  You can find the lace I used for these crowns HERE)
  • Fabric Stiffener (I used Aleene’s Stiffen Quick) 
  • Small bowl
  • Tacky Glue
  • 1 sheet posterboard
  • scissors
  • clear packing tape
  • paper plate or parchment paper
  • thin butterknife or offset spatula
  • sewing pin
  • Gold or silver metallic paint**
  • Rubber gloves
  • Paint brush
  • Hot glue gun or a jewelry adhesive (I used Aleene’s Platinum Bond Glass & Bead) 
  • Vintage jewelry, rhinestones, jeweled scrapbook trim, etc…

Step 1:  Place lace in a small bowl and cover with fabric stiffener.  Soak for 15 minutes.

Step 2:  While lace is soaking, prepare a crown form by cutting a 20” x 4” strip of posterboard.  If using a smaller piece, cut two 10.5” x 4” pieces.  Overlap by a 1/2” and tape together on the front and back.

Step 3:  Roll the posterboard in to a tube, 17.5” in circumference, and secure with packing tape.

Step 4: Remove lace from bowl, allowing excess to gently drip back in to the bowl.  Return excess stiffener to the original bottle.  Wrap the wet lace around the base of the posterboard form.  I used a spot of tacky glue to hold the overlapping ends of the lace together.

Step 5:  Put crown and form on a paper plate or piece of parchment.  Microwave on high power for 30 seconds.  There may be some crackling sounds in this initial phase. Continue to microwave in 30 second increments (depending on the power of your microwave, you might be able to go up to a max of 1 minute increments), until the lace is dry to the touch.
 
Step 6:  Remove plate from microwave and completely spray the crown (while still on the form) with stiffener.  Return to microwave and microwave in short increments till it is dry to the touch.
 
Step 7:  Repeat the process of spraying and drying until you’ve achieved the desired level of stiffness.  For me, I found that 7 spray/dry cycles was sufficient.
 
Step 8:  Remove crown from the form.  You may need to slide a butterknife or offset spatula underneath to help loosen it.  If some of the stiffener has closed up some of the holes in the lace, you can easily clean it out with the end of a pin.
Step 9:  Return the crown to the plate and microwave for an additional 30 seconds to a minute.  When removed from microwave, crown should be completely dry and stiff.  Set the crown aside while you set up your paint
 
Step 10:  Wearing rubber gloves to keep your hands clean, paint the crown, inside and out.  Do not be surprised when the crown goes soft with the application of the wet paint.  It will stiffen, harder than ever, when it dries.
Step 11:  Gently slide the wet crown back on to the posterboard form.  Set aside to dry.  You can use a hairdryer to help speed up the process, but DO NOT return the crown to the microwave. 
 
Step 12:  When crown is dry, attach bits of glitz and finery with a hot glue gun or jewelry glue.  I used bits of broken vintage jewelry that I dismantled with the help of tin snips.
 

I’ll have to try this

If there isn’t already a nail polish color called “Vakarian Blue,” somebody needs to make one.
Those of you who are friends with me on Steam may have noticed that I played an embarrassing amount of Mass Effect 2 over the weekend (I’m only what—a couple years late to the party??).  Garrus x FemShep is my new obsession favorite thing, and so I took a break from commissioned work to do this.  Aaand it is now an ungodly hour of the morning, and I can’t make myself care about turian (or human, for that matter) anatomy anymore.  For some reason, bioware didn’t see fit to have Garrus in really any state of undress at any point in time in any of the games, so I had a pretty limited set of reference images to work with. :P
ANYWAY.  brb, going to sleep/drown in Shakarian feels forever
